Film screening of Fire in the Blood and conversation with James Love,

Cast as “trade agreements”, a momentous re-writing and consolidation of the
basic rules governing the global economy is being pursued across the
globe.  At play is much more than “trade”. Bringing together noted
academics and advocates, “Rules, Rights and Resistance” presents a day-long
exploration of what is at play in the struggle over the mega-regional
agreements, namely the Trans Pacific Partnership and the Transatlatic Trade
and Investment Partnership: what they portend, the resistances they have
generated, and the horizons for rewriting and implementing alternative
rules. Sessions focus on: labor, environment, health and food.

Speakers include; Joseph Stiglitz, Columbia University, Greg Grandin, New
York University, Alan Cafruny, Hamilton College; Dean Baker, Center for
Economic and Policy Research , Frank Ackerman, Synapse Energy; Kevin
Gallagher (via video), Boston University, Lori Wallach, Public Citizen, and
Celso Amorim, Former Foreign Affairs Minister of Brazil
